    A fantastic place to stay - quiet, beautiful, great location

    Rooms are very spacious, especially the loft ones with high ceilings. The hotel is well built, beds are comfortable, and the staff is excellent. The location is ideal: far enough from the main road that you don't get bothered by the noise, yet close enough that you can walk to the beach, even if you carry a surfboard, as long as you are reasonably fit: it is a steep and rugged terrain (I find it fun). We particularly appreciated the "quiet after 9pm" policy which is a great plus compared to many hotels in Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen that cater to the party crowd. We were here to relax in a peaceful atmosphere and Canaima Chill House was the perfect getaway for that. It's one of those few places that are better for real than on the photos. Although the slogan includes the word "rustic", the hotel offers full comfort and is very well built. It doesn't have AC but the location on a hill offers natural cooling, complemented by ceiling fans inside the mosquito nets. We stayed 9 days and didn't miss AC once. The staff at Canaima is extremely helpful and goes way beyond the normal call of duty to make sure you have a great experience. Oh, and did I mention that you see plenty of wildlife in the trees surrounding the hotel, including monkeys, birds, iguanas and squirrels? Sometimes the wildlife wakes you up a bit earlier than you'd like... but hey, it's jungle... and if you want to make the best of your stay in Costa Rica you will rise early anyway! I highly recommend Canaima Chill House to any traveler looking for a peaceful, relaxed and beautiful place to stay in Santa Teresa.

    ... remember things, and strangely enough, I could place old photos and where I had taken them! Next task, to find a taxi driver who had an idea of where the community Akom is situated…

    I thought that this would be the tricky part, given that it isn’t even on the map. Luckily, the Indigenous Reserve of Salitre, in which Akom is located, has been developed over the years, with signs in place such as ...

    ... to speak a little Spanish never ceases to show its benefits. I was now about to travel the next few days with two young English girls apparently only because I would be their translator, which I believed to be only half truth. From San Jose we took a bus, a ferry and another bus to Montezuma arriving well after dark. Tired and hangry we first scoped out a place to stay a small walk out of town at Hotel Lucy and then nourished the belly with a meal of guacamole and a ...

    ... and for the amazing week I had.
    Thursday morning April 4th I ate a quick breakfast and went with Joaco to the beach one last time. He was going to surf and was wondering if I’d go with to take a few photos. I was more than happy to go to the beach one last time, you didn’t have to persuade me to do that! After returning from surfing we made a small lunch and before leaving I made sure to say goodbye to Sandy and Jonathan. They were great people ...

    ... One of the stairs was broken, the floors weren't finished, there was old furniture and garbage strewn around, the walls were only partially painted, the bedroom had no windows, the bed was falling through it's frame onto the floor... it was absolutely perfect!

    I still had to check out the one other place, also up the hill (but double the price), so I told her I'd get back to her. The other place was stunning. A gorgeous round ...

A man from Horsham came here, fell in love with the country and decided to sell up and put all his money into building this place which has about 6 villas. It took him 4 years. He married a Costa Rican and they have designed it between them and it looks lovely. The front of the bedroom is the terrace and is open to ...
